Q. Did the Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services collaborate in the development of the WIOA Final Rules?

A. Yes. The Departments of Labor (DOL) and Education (ED) (collectively, the Departments) together developed the Joint Final Rule pertaining to State planning, performance accountability, and certain one-stop requirements. The Departments also jointly developed the Information Collection Requests (ICRs) related to State planning and common performance reporting. The Departments collaborated closely with the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Agriculture, and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on the development of the Joint Final Rule and State planning processes. DOL and ED each developed program-specific final rules and performance ICRs governing program-specific requirements imposed by WIOA that fall under each of their purviews.
